VICE CHAIRMAN OF THE STA
Young Black Limited
Lawrence joined the Board of the UKTFA (now STA) in 2007 and today stands as one of the longest serving members representing the interests of the supply chain. During Lawrence’s time on the Board he has represented a broad range of committees including membership and quality, plus delivery of the Association’s PR and marketing. Lawrence was appointed chairman of the UKTFA in January 2013; a role which he will hold for two years.
Lawrence was born in Carluke Scotland and is a Pharmaceutical Chemist graduate from Strathclyde University. At the age of 28 the opportunity arose for Lawrence to go into partnership with his brother-in-law. Some 30 years on, Young Black continues to thrive and is heavily involved in the timber frame industry. Lawrence says: “You don’t get any medals for serving on the Board but what you do get is a huge amount of satisfaction knowing that we are leading the journey to Zero Carbon by a mile.”
Lawrence’s children have flown the nest which allows him to spend time with his wife Bev, entertaining friends at their self-build (timber frame) home in France.
